Sakartvelo changes Minister of Agriculture
As Vice-Speaker of Georgian Parliament Gigi Tsereteli reported in an interview today, Bakur Kvezereli will leave the post of Minister of Agriculture of Georgia. In turn, governor of Samegrelo - Zemo Svaneti Zaza Gorozia will be appointed his place. "This is a normal process of the arrival of new staff. The ruling team has no claims to Kvezereli", "Georgia-News" quoted Tsereteli. Vice-Speaker did not except that one of the deputies can become governor of Samegrelo - Zemo Svaneti.
It is worth mentioning that the opposition faction "Christian-Democrats" has repeatedly demanded resignation of Bakura Kvezereli as head of the Georgian Ministry of Agriculture. They accused him of destroying the agricultural sector in the country.
"We can certainly say that the resignation of Kvezereli will not change plight of agriculture, but a new assignment - is a chance and hope that something will change, though Gorozia did not show much interest in agriculture. His activity will be estimated on the first steps", George Akhvlediani commented the resignation of the Minister.
Kvezereli has held the position of Minister of Agriculture of Georgia since 2008.
